    Go with Camellia Mary, and let the baby choose it's own nn. I had Helena first, with great fantasies of calling her 'Laney' but she was such a serious baby that it never suited her. Then I had Frederick, thinking it was a good, strong name, but he is such a chubby, little ball of smiles, that he has never been anything other than 'Freddie'. She could be Cam or Millie, but she could also be Camellia, Melly or Lia...or Mary!

    I also love Cecily and Zinna, and have a soft spot for Hero (love Shakespearean names), but feel like it would be tough to pull off.

    And it's 'vestal' virgins, so if you like Vesper, go for it.

    Of these, I like Cecily Katherine best. You don't have to decide nicknames in advance. Wait and meet the child. Cecily might fit her perfectly, where Kit might not. Also, you can each call her by different nicknames - I saw your note by Camellia about Cam vs Millie.

    Frances Katherine "Franny"
    Cecily Katherine "Kit"
    Louisa Katherine "Lou"
    Genevieve Mary "Evie"
    Zinnia Katherine "Zinn"
    Greer Katherine
    Camellia Mary (I like Millie, he likes Cam...sigh).
    Piper Katherine

    Good luck!

    Vesper Katherine and Alba Katherine are my favorites.
    Most of the rest are not very appealing to me at all.
    Always changing...
